Welcome to our year 6 page. You can find out about our work and topics through our snapshots and access useful websites from here through the links below. First you need to know who the teachers are....

PE is on Monday every week with an extra session every other half term on a Wednesday. The extra session will commence in Autumn term 2. Children will need shorts/joggers/leggings, a T-shirt/sweatshirt and trainers. Children with pierced ears will need to either remove them, or bring protective micropore tape to cover earings that cannot be removed.
All Year 6 children are issued with planners at the beginning of the academic year. All homework tasks can be noted in these as well as forthcoming tests, trips and events. Homework will be given out on a Wednesday to be handed in the following Tuesday. Homework slips with the tasks on will be stuck into the children's homework books. Feel free to stick any homework over the slips once completed.
We added our termly "Snapshots" these give a brief overview of the work and topics that will be covered over the term. Click on the word documents below to view.
Our current topic is "Our Earth".
We will be researching the current environmental issues surrounding our planet and what can be done to combat their effect.
Renewable energy sources are a big focus and we will be investigating how much energy they produce and their advantages and disadvantages.
Learners will be given a say in the areas of these topics we explore so we would definitely encourage extra research outside of classroom time.
Homework 15.01.2020 - Due 22.01.2020
For this week’s homework, you are going to begin writing your speech ready for the Rotary Club competition. You will need to use your chosen topic of research from last week’s homework to begin writing an introduction to your speech. Please ensure that you use some exciting sentence openers, which we have been working on within class to capture the audience’s attention. Your speech can be no less than 3 minutes but no more than 5 minutes so plan your introduction carefully. We will have time to listen to the beginning of your speeches next Wednesday and give you feedback.
